Assoc Prof Ir Dr Jamaluddin Mahmud Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi MARA 40450 Shah Alam, Selangor, MALAYSIA

Assoc Prof Ir Dr Jamaluddin Mahmud obtained his PhD degree in (Biomechanical) Engineering from Cardiff University UK; MSc (Manufacturing) Engineering degree from International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM); and B.Eng. (Hons.) Mechanical Engineering degree from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). He joined the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering UiTM as a lecturer in 2001 and currently he is an Associate Professor. He has served UiTM Management Team at various levels such as a Deputy Dean, Head of Academic Programmes and the Head of Industry Linkage at the Chancellery's Office of Industry, Community and alumni Network (ICAN). He has more than two years of industrial experience, working as a service executive at UMW Equipment Sdn. Bhd. His competency in mechanical engineering supported by his past experience in industry and current involvement with industries has enabled him to register as a Professional Engineer (Ir) with the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). Assoc Prof Ir Dr J Mahmud has been lecturing on Biomechanics, Composite Materials, Finite Element Method and Engineering Design, which happens to be his areas of research interest and has published more than 150 technical papers in journals and conference proceedings locally and internationally. Due to his expertise and experience, he has been appointed as a judge in design competitions, external examiner, keynote speaker, panel evaluator, visiting researcher and a member in various technical committees at national and international level.


Speech Title: Kinect and Its Recent Development in Motion Capture-Analysis:

The plenary speech is intended to introduce Motion-Capture and Analysis using a simple and portable motion capture system, developed using Kinect. The first part of the presentation highlights the review to benchmark the publications of ASEAN Countries related to Kinect Applications. The literatures are retrieved from Scopus and Web of Science (WoS) as these are the top two recognised databases for Malaysian research community. Based on the results, it is interesting to observe that there is an increasing trend of research and indexed publications pertaining to Kinect in Malaysia and thus, this could highlight Malaysia as a prospective nation for research collaboration. The second part of the presentation highlights the development of a simple, portable, low-cost and reliable motion capture system using Kinect that is associated with modified RULA (mRULA) scoring system which can assess the physical risk during the use of a computer (named as FJ Sense-mRULA). The results obtained are promising and thus this system could provide numerous advantages when compared to the established marker or wearable sensor-based system. Therefore, it could be concluded that the study has contributed significant knowledge towards understanding of motion capture system and modified RULA assessment.
